So, literary people out there...

I've got a bit of an important question for something I'm writing. Okay, here goes.

John Galt is to Republicans as (who) is to Democrats?


EDIT: Forgot to mention, I'm looking for a character from a book. Whoops, that's important information.

Well, actor, actor, actor, guy I'm trying to draw comparisons to, man who owns everything, movie, yes, lol Rand, ... Musician?, People.

I get it, I'll just use O'Brien from 1984 since people apparently don't read anymore.

No one,




because there are no other writers as great as Ayn Rand that have affiliated themselves with the democratic party.

Rand uses Galt as a sort of Prometheus character who withdraws from the world because he isn't getting enough credit for his 'work'. As a result, the world (Of Ayn Rand, because apparently the world is built on Atlas's back, hence the title Atlas Shrugged... Which brings up the point why is Galt both Prometheus and Atlas) begins to crumble economically, laying the groundwork for the book.

O'Brien isn't nearly the same connection, smooth-talking traitor to Winston's revolution, but it's as close as I can get. He's kinda likable for some people, outright villainous to others, but it's not as polar as Galt.

He starts a boycott against an authoritarian government running a command economy similar to that of the Soviet Union.

I was thinking that, but it doesn't fit into the meter.

Steinbeck kicks the shit out of Rand as a writer, too.
